Designing an Accessible Classroom @ CUNY
The Winter 2018 Retreat is a great opportunity for members from the CUNY Centers for Teaching and Learning to engage in discussions about current pedagogical trends and innovations. This year, the retreat will focus on Designing an Accessible Classroom at CUNY.
The CUNY CTL Advisory Council also aims to establish a repository of resources for Institutions to use as they are exploring accessibility.
